St. Michael Prayer

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do, thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the Power of God, cast into hell satan and all of the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Glory to God in the Highest!

Our Camino del Rey ends this week - Holy Thursday - The Start of the Triduum - He Knew

He knew.
He knew as He sat down with His apostles this meal would be His Last.

He knew, as He washed the feet of His Apostles, they would doubt Him.

He knew His friends would abandon Him.

He knew Peter would deny Him.

He knew Judas would sell Him for 30 pieces of silver.

He knew the women of Jerusalem would defy the Romans for Him.

He knew Veronica would wipe His face to comfort Him, risking her life, as the Romans continued to beat Him savagely.

He knew His Mother and the women would be with Him to His death.

He knew Simon would help Him carry His cross.

He knew He was born to be Love.

He knew His Father would weep.

He knew that when they left the upper room, the world would never be the same.

He knew.  He knew.


  1. Absolutely simple and beautiful. Please fix slight TYPO- It is SIMON who helped carry the cross. Simeon was the old man in the temple at the Presentation of Jesus. Thanks.

  2. MJM, thank you for the correction.. I wrote this late at night. I was tired, and you were right. Mistake corrected!
